Houston Texans – New Orleans Saints Sept 9 Prediction
The first game of what has become tradition on the opening Monday night of the season, Houston makes the short tip east to New Orleans to face the Saints. New Orleans is still angry from the way last year ended in the NFC Championship, and this could be the last ride for Drew Brees under center for the Saints.
Houston ended 2018 on a three-game over streak, while the Saints ended last year on an 0-4 streak against the spread at home. The Texans are also 6-2-2 against the spread in their last 10 games.
The Saints may be due to regress in 2019, but will they still be able to win this one? Maybe, but just: 28-24, but Houston covers.
